Well, hello there 2012!

I always seem to talk about resolutions, but actually have never put them down on paper, and have definitely never followed through with anything I've discussed, so I'm hoping to be a little more accountable for myself by putting them here. The problem is I don't actually have specific resolutions, but rather some ideas that I want to get moving...

I want to run. Like almost every day. It's not that I actually like running. I actually hate it. But what I do LOVE is the rush of energy afterwards.  The problem is, I really LOVE sleeping in. And hanging out with my family. So it's been hard for me to get into. Sigh...

I want to do more.

I can't really explain this, other than the fact that I have been feeling rather convicted lately that I haven't been contributing to our society in any sort of effective way, and it just makes me want to do cool (for lack of a better term) stuff. Like I have this amazing degree that I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to obtain, and I do help people with it every day, but I just feel like I can put it to use in a different, more creative way in our community. I don't have money to give, but I could make the time.  Any suggestions?

I want to eat at least one vegetable every day.  May seem an easy enough task, but we're on day four, people, and I've already failed!  But the effort has been there. I know it sounds a bit ludicrous that it's difficult for me, a completely self-sufficient responsible adult to achieve this, but we're meat and potato people. I actually just need to eat like my daughter, and I'd be set.

And that's my little list of three. There's something magical about this clean slate we receive each year, but what 2011 has taught me (with the help of a rambunctious toddler) is that each day is new. Each day we're given is an opportunity to learn, and to make ourselves, our lives, and our opportunities just a little bit better.

So here's to you, 2012!

Until next time,
